Let's just hope she doesn't go through a "Give Out But Don't Give Up" phase.
Weirdly enough the song that kept going through my head was Natalie Imbruglia's Wishing I Was There.
Then they should have made the headline "John Mayer's New Song Sounds like BTS" if they really wanted people to flood the comments.
This honestly sounds more like Yacht Rock than it sounds like The War on Drugs. (Although it's probably closer to the post-84 Adult Contemporary stuff that immediately followed Yacht Rock, than actual Yacht Rock)
Eh, this is too crisp sounding to sound like The War on Drugs. This just feels he is pulling from a lot of the same 80s influences that the War on Drugs pulled from. I feel like The Killers album from last year had stuff that sounded a lot more like The War on Drugs than this does.
I just remember being confused when the Pyramid Song video came out because Kid A still felt like it had just come out and that album didn't really have any videos or singles, mostly just the short blips. So I was all like "Wait. Radiohead have ANOTHER album already?"
Pfft Kazaa. The cool kids at this time were all using AudioGalaxy.
Be careful what you wish for. Next thing you know, she's going to be hanging out with Joe Rogan.
Don't say that too loud. The TNOCS folks might hear you.
I once had a conversation with some people younger than me who said "Did you know that the lead singer of Don't Worry Be Happy, Bob Marley, killed himself?", and I had to explain to them that "No, the lead singer of Don't Worry Be Happy is Bobby McFerrin, and he's alive and well. No, Bob Marley did not kill himself. No, Bob Marley did not die of an overdose of marijuana either. Bob Marley died of a untreated cancer in his toe because he refused to have it amputated due to his Rastafarian beliefs."
That list of influences sounds really intriguing, and yet I can't help but expect it to just end up sounding like some generic monogenre pop.
Still better than Rita Ora who is the poor man's Marina.
Hah! I wasn't the only one thinking this.
Last really big headliner I can think of was R Kelly in 2013, and we try not to speak of that anymore.
I was hoping they would take the lead from the Post Malone one and it would just be current artists covering unrelated mid 90s Adult Alternative hits. Katy Perry could be covering Dog's Eye View's "Everything Falls Apart", Deep Blue Something's "Breakfast at Tiffany's" or Del Amitri's "Roll to Me".
So, basically "What if Lorde took more influence from the earlier work of her main co-writer/producer on Pure Heroine, Joel Little?"
He also filmed footage for an Adult Swim at around that same time that never seemed to come to light, which this very website wrote an article about: https://www.stereogum.com/49801/behind_the_scenes_of_andrew_wks_new_tv_show/photo/
I think they actually came from the intro to Wall of Voodoo's "Mexican Radio".
This was also the era of Chop Suey! being huge and that wasn't your typical radio hit either.
